CrGHA High Performance Program Paving the Way for our Athletes
Submitted By roadrunners Hockey on Wed 02 10, 21
With the implementation of the CrGHA High Performance Program, we are seeing more and more of our athletes succeed and reach their goals of playing hockey at a higher level. This program fosters a close working relationship between our U15AA and U18AA teams with the Rivulettes providing opportunities for these players to regularly practice with the Rivulettes and being called up to play in games when needed. Many of our athletes are coming out of this program and moving up to play in the PWHL which is considered to be the highest level of junior women's amateur hockey in Ontario.  A lot of these players are fortunate enough to play on our own PWHL team, the Rivulettes who have celebrated many successes. The majority of these players are then going on to play university hockey in Canada or the United States often receiving hockey scholarships. In fact, for the last three years, every Rivulette graduate has gone on to play university hockey. The Rivulettes are also one of only three teams to make the second round of the playoffs each of the last three seasons. In addition, six players and staff represented Team Ontario at Nationals last year. It goes without saying that we are very grateful that our athletes have access to the Rivulettes and will continue to foster this relationship.  

2017/2018  roadrunners

 players Maya D'Arcy and Sydnie Miller played for our U15 AA team in the 2017/2018 season. At the end of the season, they both made a big jump from U15 AA to the Rivulettes. D'Arcy subsequently committed to Division 1 Syracuse University where she is headed in 2022. Additionally, D'Arcy and Miller had the opportunity to attend multiple OWHA High Performance Camps. Miller was also chosen by the OWHA to represent Ontario during a tour of Japan in early 2019.

2018/2019  roadrunners   

   

Sydney Healey and Kara Mark played for our U15 AA team in the 2018/2019 season and made the jump to PWHL teams skipping U18 AA altogether. Healey signed with the Rivulettes while Mark signed with the PWHL Waterloo KW Rangers. In her first year with the Rivulettes, Healey committed to Division 1 Boston University where she will be attending in 2022 while Mark recently committed to the University of Waterloo women’s hockey team.  

 

After Sarah Bestic’s first U18AA season, she joined the Rivulettes. Bestic recently committed to Wilfrid Laurier women’s hockey team for the 2021 season. Another noteworthy achievement is Bestic being chosen to compete for a spot to represent Team Canada in the U18 Women's World Hockey Championship had it not been cancelled due to COVID-19.

2019/2020 roadrunners  


At the end of the 2019/2020 season, more than half of the U18AA roadrunner team committed to PWHL teams. Rylee Crego, Emerie Maltby, Claire Robinson, Jayden Calder, Gillian Rovers, Grace Baker and Callie Pitts all made the jump to the Rivulettes while Avery Cant and Hailey Simoneau joined the PWHL Waterloo K-W Rangers. During the 2018/2019 season, the majority of this stellar group of athletes won Bantam AA Provincial Gold and Lower Lakes Bronze. The majority of this group also won Bantam AA Provincial Silver in the 2017/2018 season and were on track for more success in the 2019/2020 season (losing just one game all season) had the season not been cut short due to Covid-19.  


Other notable mentions during the 2019/2020 season include Olivia McMillan committing to Wilfrid Laurier women's hockey team while she was playing for our U18AA team. Hailey Duggan (U18AA) was also the recipient of the Ontario Hockey Federation Scholarship. That same season, U15AA Sydney Vandenburg made the jump to the London Devilettes PWHL team. Additionally, U18AA Kate Mabey recently committed to Division 3 Morrisville State Women’s hockey team.

With all of these great accomplishments, it is evident that the High Performance program has succeeded and continues to succeed in developing our roadrunner athletes.  The relationship and exposure our athletes have to the Rivulettes and their coaching staff is a huge factor in attributing to the success of our athletes. We have an increasingly large number of girls that want to play in Cambridge now due to the success of our program. It is a program that the roadrunners are proud of and will continue to embrace to develop strong athletes and help them achieve their goals.
